Sexes Eligible for Study: Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No
Inclusion Criteria:
  1. - Histologically confirmed diagnosis of invasive triple negative breast cancer - Known status for the LCL161 predictive gene expression signature as determined during molecular pre-screening - Candidates for mastectomy or breast-conserving surgery - Primary tumor of greater than 20 mm and less than or equal to 50 mm diameter measured by imaging (previous Amendment #3 was tumor size greater than 10 mm) - Regional nodes N0-N2 - Absence of distant metastatic disease - ECOG performance status 0-1 - Adequate bone marrow function - Adequate liver function and serum transaminases - Adequate renal function
Exclusion Criteria:
  1. - Bilateral or inflammatory breast cancer (bilateral mammography is required during Screening/baseline); locally recurrent breast cancer - Patients currently receiving systemic therapy for any other malignancy, or having received systemic therapy for a malignancy in the preceding 3 months - Uncontrolled cardiac disease - Patients who are currently receiving chronic treatment (>3 months) with corticosteroids at a dose ≥ 10 mg of prednisone (or its glucocorticoid equivalent) per day (inhaled and topical steroids are allowed), or any other chronic immunosuppressive treatment that cannot be discontinued prior to starting study drug - Impaired GI function that may affect the absorption of LCL161 - Pregnant or breast feeding (lactating) women - Women of child-bearing potential, defined as all women physiologically capable of becoming pregnant, unless they are using highly effective methods of contraception during dosing and for 180 days after study treatment - Other protocol-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply
